Extended GP Services
Bromley GPs are now providing more patient appointments in the evenings and at weekends. These extended services are available from 4pm to 8pm in the evening and 8am to 8pm at weekends at one of the three Bromley GP Alliance Access hubs. The GP you see will have full access to your normal GP records and can prescribe, order investigations and refer you just like your usual GP. It is also possible to see a Practice Nurse at the Hubs by appointment.
To get an appointment at one of the hubs please call Reception on 01689 850012 during the hours 8am-6.30 pm. If there is no appointment available in the Practice, you will be offered an appointment at one of the hubs. Alternatively you may specifically choose a Hub appointment in the evening or weekend because it is more convenient for you. Hubs are located in Beckenham, central Bromley and Orpington. If you need to see a GP urgently when the Practice is closed please call 111.
